Return

By Aaron Becker
Illustrated by Aaron Becker

The eagerly-anticipated finale of Aaron Becker's wordless trilogy - a spectacular, suspenseful and moving story that brings its adventurer home.

Aaron Becker, creator of the award-winning Journey and its stunning, celebrated sequel, Quest, presents the final chapter in his luminous, wordless fantasy. Failing to get the attention of her busy father, a lonely girl turns back to a fantastic world for friendship and adventure. It's her third journey into the enticing realm of kings and emperors, castles and canals, exotic creatures and enchanting landscapes. But this time, it will take something truly powerful to persuade her to return home, as a gripping backstory is revealed that will hold readers in its thrall.

  • The final title in Aaron Becker's wordless picture book trilogy that began with the Caldecott Honor-winning Journey (2013) and continued with Quest (August, 2014).
  • Echoes of Journey and Quest are clear in the book design, and will immediately prompt excited recognition for the series.
  • In his short, two-book career, Aaron Becker has garnered and nurtured (via social media) a huge fan base for his work.
